Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin canada

vicodin

I am embarrassed to admit that I am 42 years old and addicted to Vicodin ES - sometimes up to 10 tablets a day. It started over 5 years ago after a pinched nerve in my back. I have since developed chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia although I am not sure if the addiction has brought on the problem. Before that I worked out 6 days a week and taught aerobics.
We don't call it Vicodin in Canada but it's the same stuff and available over the counter. I've been using it for about 2 years and average about 30 per day @ 8mg Codeine, 125mg acetaminophen. Concerned about liver damage and want to stop but not cold turkey. Anybody else been able to wean themselves off?
D about five years ago i began having lower back pain it was pretty bad went to a neurologist and he explained that i have a slipped disk not too bad but enough to cause pain that sometimes kept me from going to work we began treatment with physical therapy and some antinflamatories (did not help my pain at all) so next step he prescribed this magic little pill vicodin 5/500 of course it worked and i was so happy to be able to be a mom a wife and a good employee without the horrible pain months
Hey everyone- I've been taking about 6 1/2-7 1/2 vicodin 7.5/750 or 500 for about 9 months now. When I start to get wirhdrawls or notice it's time to take my pills- i get real jittery, sweaty, irritable.. you know what I'm talking about. Sometimes I lay in bed at night feeling my heart beat racing, a couple of times I've actually been driving and felt a wave of anxiety, rapid heart beats, and this odd feeling comes over my whole body- freaks me out.
This week I am on about 560 mg of Vicodin, and having troubl;e sleeping.,. but doesn't it have to be done sooner or later? I am kinda of confused about how fast I should go??? Except for the sleep, the worst physical symptoms are over. Constipated, diarrea, some anxiety..but the sleep lack is horrible to me. I guess my question is....is it ok to use 1.25mg of Ativan while I get off the Vicodin and the Soma asap???? My first time on this board....
At first, we had Vicodin around the house for really bad days, but it didn't take long for my relationship with the drug to become unhealthy. I was using it to feel "better", but lost sight of what "better" was. I went from wanting to not be in pain, to wanting to escape feelings and stress I had that I didn't know how to deal with. For a couple of years, I would take what what we had when we had it.
well vicodin is a very addicting narcotic and withdrawl symptoms can be harsh even fatal in bad cases....but you should try substituting the substance with some else ...
Hello all, I have not posted in a very long time. I am at a serious low tonight. I am on administration leave from my place of work. Yesterday morning I took two norco home from my place of work that were not mine. The incident was discovered, and I did return the pills as I had not realized I had gone home with them in my pocket.
It took three vicodin just to get around three hrs of sleep . It has never lasted this long before hopefully it will stop soon . I need to go back to work. The Drs said I might need to do another round of stress testing I don't know what I should do at this point and don't think they know what to do.
Pam. She stopped by last night. We talked a bit, mostly about old times, you know, the usual nostalgic stuff like, "remember that morning when we woke up and there was a CERT team in our home?", or, "I didn't know that police dogs were so mean", that sort of thing. You know. Anyway... haha But yeah. I miss her. Loads. I am also scared of her. Loads. I dunno what to do. Which is causing me consternation and the like, and that is a dangerous state for me.
The active ingredient in Vicodin is hydrocodone and a standard Vicodin contains 5 mg. And you have to specifically ask the pharmacist for this tylenol/codeine/caffeine combo, it is not out on the shelves, even in Canada. I'd ask your wife just why she decided to purchase it? Good luck.
Looking back i should have came out, since the same people i was with back then are still in my life, i still was unhappy and partied a lot. About once a week a friend of mine and i would take vicodin by eating or crushing on our breaks and go back into school and have such a great time, we were always known to brighten up the class room in a positive light. After graduating i began working in the real world, i was a carpenter for a big and coming closet company, fitting right?
I finally broke down and told my primary doctor about me and the vicodin. She hasn't heard of suboxone and when she looked it up it said it was restricted in the U.S. I go back to discuss it further with her tomorrow. So I made a step in the right direction in admitting my problem. My question is are there other drugs that can help with the withdrawl since she is not familiar with suboxone? Does methadone work? Has anyone here tried methadone?
can you help me!? Sub was just approved in Canada in May of this year it's not being dispensed yet, but will be soon!
I've never detoxed from codeine but have from vicodin and oxy. At my worst I was taking over 20, 10mg vicodin a day. I never thought it would happen to me either. It can happen to anyone. The worst of the symptoms usually start subsiding around day 5 or so. If you've made it to day 4 keep moving forward and never look back! There are some things that will help. Check into the Amino Acid Protocol. It lists some vitamins and supplements that help aid with the withdrawal symptoms.
So anyway I am on vicodine es, soma and at one point I tried T3. My husbend gets 222 for Canada which I may take when I run out of my meds. Well I took a drug test and they sent to the labs and I just found out that they found codiene, opeants, and benzo. Where did the benzo come from? I never heard of it and I was wondering is Canada codiene the same as the US? I meet with my p.o soon and I have to be perpared. I will talk to my dr. but I am scared.
The dr will probably just taper him off slowly....what drug is it?
Dr refused to renew my script. Here in Canada the Oxy med has changed and my dr without any discussion with myself switched me to t3's instead. From a drippy nose, to diarrhea, to body ache, to mood swings, to feeling nausea, to feeling like there are bugs in my body, to just feeling like I'm going crazy, to wanting to find it on the street and buy some to make these symptoms disappear just for an hour, to feeling anxiety, to feeling I'm helpless.
Well, I went to the dentist and got a route canal done... he prescribed Vicodin (I used them all, and it got infected so they refilled 3 times for that 4 week period) No problem yet! Then I got a bladder infection and was curled up in pain... Urgent Care gave me Vicodin. Then I started getting pain in my feet and legs... Urgent care gave me Vicodin and sent me on my way. Ok, so I understand that this is their job but I didn't have a family doctor and didn't know the specialist to go to.
Off vicodin for 16 days....I want no more of that! However, I am still in alot of back pain, and now stomach burning like crazy that just started a week ago...may not be related at all. So....I am going to ask for more lidocaine patches (better than nothing!), and what else???? Can't take advil because of these stomach problems, and I already know the perils of tramadol, so I don't want that either. Thoughts???? thanks.
I must say that it's getting better. The big surprise is that my back doesn't hurt as much! Go figure. I think the neurotin is really helping my pain, and also being able to sleep at nite. I take 1/2 pill today, then I'm done. A long road, but worth it for sure. And...I'm the one that wished I didn't tell my husband yesterday because of the crack he made about "being hooked on vicodin"....yesterday he sent me flowers cause he felt so bad about what he said. So....
Tylenol is hard on the liver and adding alcohol is even harder and from what I have read and learned can lead to liver damage. When I was taking vicodin I did not drink at all because of the fear of destroying my liver. Please get her to a doctor that can and will explain this to her.
not a neuro.......gave me some vicodin..........which i have not yet taken ........and some days the pain is so severe i feel like ill jump off a dam bridge......or something I want my life back........nothing is good with this pain ... Im not the nice person I use to be.........
thinking of suboxone treatment for vicodin addiction.
I tried a bunch of non narcotic pills and it didnt help. I tired vicodin and it did help. Like you, I figured that the vicodin was nothing compared to the "good" drugs I was free from. I mean compare heroin to vicodin and its like comparing whisky to kool aid. So to become addicted to it was something I couldnt get with for awhile. But its true. I abuse the heck out of them, always run out of them early, always take more than prescribed. Im on day four off them right now.
You sound like you and I are around the same - a year of abusing vicodin for me. Today is i think day 3? now I am getting confused. Yes, day three. So, Glo, did you taper or go CT??? I tapered and wonder if I didnt taper correctly, since I am feeling such crazy stuff. It sounds like stuff CT would feel like. Sorry If I am rambling or forgetting what others have posted. GOINGTOMAKEIT: Day 5 is turning point for CT AND tapering? ok...I will keep checking.
Hey there - just a quick update. I am down to tapering 2 tablets of Vicodin today from 10-12 a week ago. It's been a long week - but the progress I have made is unbelievable. My concentration and energy levels have returned and the 'fog' has dispersed to a point where life seems livable without narcotics. The worse days so far for me were Day 3 & Day 4 - the anxiety, edginess, body temperature changes, etc.
i dont have a zip code, i live in canada, pls tell me that suboxone is available here.
I am detoxing cold turkey right now. This is day 2 and it is awful. I was taking 20 vicodin es pills a day for over 2 years. I have been "blacklisted" by the Department of Health who sent a letter to all of my doctors. I have a love hate relationship with opiates and right now I hate what I am feeling. How many days is it for you now and what where you taking?
